I've been trying to fish so I can get cats and post them around the outside of my base to ward off creepers, but fishing is very slow and tedious. Perhaps there could be some more efficient way to get fish? I have a few possibilities:
Name: Automatic Fisher
Description: Machine that when placed adjacent to a body of water and given power will over time catch fish, probably through a net system or sucking them in through pipes or something. Will work slower with very small bodies of water; needs a certain size to work at maximum speed.
Recipe: No idea except it should be rather basic - possibly wood instead of based off a machine block.
Name: Iron Fishing Pole and Electric Fishing Pole
Description: The Iron Fishing Pole has a recipe much like the ordinary fishing pole except it uses iron bars instead of sticks. Lasts longer and possibly fishes faster. The electric fishing pole is crafted like many electric tools, with a battery, circuit, and Iron Fishing Pole; it uses energy instead of durability, and possibly fishes even faster.
Recipe: Iron Fishing Pole: Three iron bars in a diagonal with two string on the side, like a fishing rod. Electric Fishing Pole: Battery, Circuit, Iron Fishing Pole in an / shape.
Name: Fish Plant (?!)
Description: It's a crop that gives Raw Fish when harvested.
Recipe: Breed random stuff together or something.
======= Some additional ideas:
Description: New crop that produces catnip, an item that can tame ocelots and make cats breed just like raw fish. Can also lure ocelots and cats more effectively than fish (maybe not if that's hard to code), and if placed on the ground also acts as a cat/ocelot lure.
Recipe: Proposed breeding product of hops and some sort of flower. Hops for flavor and flowers for scent.
Name: Pet Food / Dog Food / Cat Food
Description: Macerated meat or fish will become 2 Pet Food, which can tame/breed both Wolves and Cats. Alternatively, only macerated Raw Fish can turn into Cat Food which only works on cats, and any other sort of macerated meat will become Dog Food which only works on Wolves. Probably only raw meat/fish should work, and rotten meat only yields one instead of two because it's so abundant.
Recipe: In Macerator: Raw Fish > 2 Cat Food / Pet Food, Raw Chicken/Raw Beef/Raw Pork > 2 Dog Food / Pet Food, Rotten Meat > 1 Dog Food / Pet Food
